For the Love of Aprons

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

At Chomp and Stomp last weekend, I had the delightful fortune to meet Becky of Glue and Glitter and purchase one of her adorable aprons. It is green and white gingham with a big pink, felt cupcake sewn on. Oh you have to check her out. Since it’s kinda hard to take a picture of me with it on and the dogs will not sit still and don’t have a waist….here’s a photo from Becky’s site. Isn’t it the sweetest?


My only issue is that it’s so cute, I don’t want to mess it up!

I always feel so June Cleaver with an apron on. It makes me want to put on some pearls and whip up something yummy for my hardworking husband.

Aprons appear to be enjoying a fashion resurgence. Even ladies who don’t like the kitchen seem to be buying them up.  The show Mad Men could be another reason – the 1960s are hot again. And these aprons look so chic over a little black sheath dress.

Check out Jessie Steele’s creations. They are the darlingest!  Almost makes you want to wear just the apron….and some nice heels.

Isn't this the cutest?

Other apron designers include wicked Carolyn West at Carolyn’s Kitchen. Her designs are just the thing to ignite the spark in your beloved. Whip up some cookies and wear this while doing so and you will be the hit of the house! She also has some fabulous aprons designed to bring out your inner cougar, if you are so inclined. Let me share with you.

So Naughty!

So there you go. Pick up an apron and see what heats up.

There’s more to cooking than the oven, Darlings!
